    Went riding with friends at Ringwood...broke my chain in the trail. Borrowed friend's Yeti 575 to ride back to the parking lot to get the chain breaker, then performed repair on the trail...had a blast afterwards. Longest ride we did (4.5 hours) because of that on-trail repair.

    Nothing on the bike but I did some winter maintenance trail work to keep the local park trails in shape to ride when wet.

    Spend a few hours every month or 2 on your local trails. Give back. Represent the mtb community well. You'll thank yourself.

    It was on the bottom section. It wasn't a real technical part actually, I was just trying to loosen up after clearing the real rutty areas and caught my front wheel then did a nice OTB onto my head. Chit happens. Have fun tomorrow!

    Hit my local trail. Ill miss it in a few months when I leave here, but that and the LBS are about the only things worth attention at this place. Forgive the cellular-phone like quality. These images were captured by a cellular phone...

    Gotcha. well, I made it through without any OTB's. On the way up the mud was very slick and kinda worried me about the downhill. I was surprised at just how well my tires did even when they were fully caked. I ended up going much faster then I had planned to be able to. Riding a hardtail with flats I lost my footing and now I will be extending my pins to full cheese grader setting lol. It was fun and the group I went with made it even better.

    You guys climbed up it then rode back down? We took Santiago Truck Trail up the down the luge. Anyways, glad you had fun! It's a great trail and the reason I fell was me being a dummy and not paying enough attention in a not so technical spot.

    Bare with me as I don't know the area well. We parked at cooks corner and rode up the street till we reached a dirt trail. All I know is it was a lot of uphill to reach the flag lol.

    Rode for about 2 hours today on the trails around my town..saw lots of people, most of which were college students (I am one as well.) Got lots of compliments on my new fuel ex, and had a blast bombing down some of the steeper single track.

    Rode an hour and a half Sat and then was getting ready to ride yesterday afternoon and noticed a nice rip in the sidewall of my rear tire! So went to the LBS (only one that was open), bought a new tire and replaced it. Now I have a specialized rear tire with a rapid rob on the front...on a scott bike!

    Usual Tuesday morning ride, seemed tough today. Installed ergon GS1 grips. Tried to move brakes inboard so I can switch from middle finger to index finger braking. Didn't work so if we cross paths I swear I'm using my brakes and not flipping you off lol.

    11.6 miles of fun. Proved that I need new tires when both washed out on me at once. Thankful to whoever built the hump that kept me from going over the side of the trail lol.

    Test ride my new (like new used) Stumpjumper Comp HT 2009 for 2.5 miles around the neighborhood. I walked out of the bike several times in attempts to do a wheeli. Huge difference between my old Trek 820 ST and this beauty.

    im still out of the fun waiting for my next paycheck so that i can hopefully buy a new fork. i can't remember if i put it on here but bout a month and half ago. was riding on the local college 4x track and was practicing some smaller jumps. came down hard on the front shocks and the top part that holds the springs in flew off and the spring shot out. scare the crap out of me. hopefully getting some Fox Vanilla forks to replace the garbage suntours that were on it.

    Put in 15 miles on the trails around my house and spent yesterday laid up with a sinus infection.

    Good news is that the underarmor cold gear shirt really does keep you nice and warm.

    I smash my suntour NVX fork on the trails and it never showed any signs of coming close to breaking. But I guess I should go a less hard on my fork.not. But srsly, don't want another mechanical...
    It's pronounced "so pro and cool."
    It was an impulse decision.

    Attempted to remove my rear wheel on my Giant Faith only to discover the last time it was serviced the mechs have tightened up the rear axle on one side such that I can't seem to get it off. First free weekend in months and it looks like I won't be able to ride, at least no where fun as it won't fit in my car with wheels attached.

    The drive side nut comes off no worries. The other side is clamped on to the frame tight and wont let go.

    dont get me wrong the fork feels solid and honestly works perfectly. The spring seems to be just right for my weight and ive never needed more travel. But last week I noticed the pesky warning label telling me its meant for lil stuff only. So when your like 4 ft in the air that and the videos cross your mind lol.

    you should have rode on my previous forks, you wouldnt hit anything more than 6 inches off the ground.

    if you had someone hold onto the lowers really tight, and you pushed on the handle bar, there was a good 30-35mm gap between the stanchions and the lowers. and yet i pushed the limits on it until it did break. and when it did break. bricks were shat. lol

    if your doing jumps that high and you wanna consider a new fork just for jumping, the marzocchi DJ dart forks are on sale at pricepoint.com right now. here's a link
    Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 3 Fork 2012 at Price Point

    that one being a base model, and then they have others with the QR, and 20mm TA as well for just a few bucks more. I actually, am buying my forks from pricepoint as well when i get paid next week, after that, im upgrading all my components to the SRAM x-9 build kit they have.

    Well, changed the rear tube for the first time, and the installation was disastrous. I didn't figure out the way I have to attach the chainwheel to the chain, and now I have a front der. that needs adjustment, and let's hope nothing else. I wish I learned that on my old bike, put never had a flat on the rear tire on her!

    At this time, with the load of paper, no riding that counts, unfortunately.

    Put on new rotors, which dropped some weight. Very high bling factor also.
